ORGANISERS of an exciting fundraising event in Harrow are urging local people to get involved.Cancer Research UK’s Relay For Life is a unique celebration of life and hope which unites communities to help beat cancer and culminates in a fantastic family and team event.Teams of between eight to 15 people – of all ages, levels of fitness and from all walks of life – are needed to take part in the overnight fundraising festival at the Bannister Stadium over the weekend of 7th-8th September 2013. During the Relay itself, team members take it in turns to walk round a track while everyone else enjoys a wide range of fun activities on offer.As dusk falls, the atmosphere quietens as the Candle of Hope ceremony begins. The event is the most poignant part of Relay For Life when specially made Candle of Hope bags – decorated with touching messages in memory or in celebration of loved ones – are filled with sand and lit up with candles around the track.This is the seventh time Relay For Life has taken place in Harrow. Now the committee of volunteers staging Relay For Life is looking for even more local support to help make it a tremendous success.
HCR is also doing its part by staging a 24 hour Marathon Outside Broadcast. Our Presenters will go on air from 12 noon at Bannister Stadium on the 7th September and finish at 12 noon on the 8th September. You can sponsor our team for this event of which 50% raised go directly to Relay for life and the rest will go to fund our application for a full time FM licence in 2014.

Cancer Research UK funds the work of thousands of scientists, doctors and nurses who are dedicated to beating cancer by understanding its causes and investigating how best to prevent, diagnose and treat it.Thanks to Cancer Research UK’s work, more people are surviving cancer than ever before. Survival rates have doubled over the last 40 years and the charity’s work has been at the heart of that progress.But despite improvements in treatment, cancer causes more than one in four of all deaths in the UK. Cancer Research UK wants to change that and needs the help of people in Harrow to help save many more lives.
